Tilting wood panels often involves tilting the sheet wood from a horizontal to a vertical position.
By adding an angle adapter and handle to the vacuum lifter, the suction foot can grip from a horizontal position and tilt to a vertical position, a 90 degree manual tilt which uses very little manual force. Power loss does not cause any problems, the vacuum system will make sure that the goods are lowered to the ground in a controlled manner. This system covers a total of 5 working stations.
The lumber industry depends on VacuMove to lift heavy wood panels and move large and heavy pieces of primary produce. Weights up to 550 lbs are not unusual.
